Hi Pius,

The typical work day of any systems analyst is more or less towards the following points.

1. They analyze the system with respect to functionality and performance.
2. They develop and maintain system codes
3. Do debugging in case of issues and resolve them.

In general the up keep of any system becomes the responsibility of a Systems analyst.

Mark’s Answer

The term computer systems analyst is already outdated. Every company, depending on size and industry could define this job differently. And to make the issue more complex, the education system has a separate set of terms for their degrees.
I would seek out courses that are of interest of you while also researching companies of interest where you want to live.
After a few courses, I would seek out paying work or an internship to see if you like that kind of work. Doing what you like is much more important then the name of the skill. In this field, for the foreseeable future, these are well paying jobs.
Even in a university degree that are different paths to become a systems engineer, a software engineer, a computer science major, a UI/UX designed or a software developer. And no two schools have the exact same curriculum,
It took me a year of working in a company to identify what I didn't like to do, which was invaluable in picking courses to finish my degree and finding a job and career path I loved.

Mark recommends the following next steps:

Reseach the companies in the area you want to live
Talk to HR and meet people (and maybe shadow them), to see what they really do
Find the educational opportunities where you want to live
Identify there major offereings
Pick a course of semester of courses to try and see if you can get an internship
